Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Mickey Mouse only appears in half the cartoons. Most feature Pluto chasing another creature, getting himself in a "situation" with him either falling or smashing into something or having his bottom bit by the other creature.

Is It Any Good?
This DVD is a tribute to the old Disney that parents remember and love from their own childhood; the cartoons have lots of action but nothing that is scary like much of today's animation. Pluto is chased and chases other animals. Sometimes he gives large, exaggerated bites on an animal's back side. Other times he falls down from high places or gets hit on the head and sees stars and birdies. It's all make-believe, silly, and he's always okay in the end. Nevertheless, some younger kids may not be able to make the fantasy/real world distinction.
Older kids and adults will appreciate the humor, clever-for-its-time animation, and sweetness that is characteristic of these older Disney shorts. Parents may still be asked to buy a Pluto toy or Mickey slippers, but that's an unavoidable problem with any favorite children's characters.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
